Global perspective:

In the United States, more and more students realize that being able to communicate in another language is a vital feature of a well-rounded U.S. education. Communication and language are the core of human experience and it is important for the U.S. to educate its students to make them culturally and linguistically equipped to communicate with the local multiethnic society and global audiences.

Because English is no longer the exclusive language of business, it is critical that people start learning other languages in order to communicate in the language of the customer. 

Prepares you for a better future:

As the Asian economy rises, more opportunities for work would be available. Japanese is a language that is not commonly taught or studied, like French, German, or Spanish. Learning Japanese will boost your professional value. When you learn Japanese, you’ll have less competition in opportunities available in different fields, such as business, social sciences, humanities, technology, science, journalism, and tourism. If you want to be a translator for the government or a language services provider, your competition is lower when you speak Japanese compared to other more commonly taught languages.

You could also have better chances of promotion. If you’re working for an international corporation, speaking a foreign language like Japanese creates more opportunities for you to be assigned to an overseas branch.

 Improves your skills in studying your other academic lessons:

As a student, learning Japanese helps you gain broader perspectives, higher thinking skills, and new learning strategies that you can apply to your other academic subjects.

You can qualify as an English teacher in Japan:

Your proficiency in Japanese can be your stepping-stone to teach English in Japanese high schools or even work in some local Japanese organizations of the government. The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme (JET) is an annual program where foreign students who pass the criteria and review process can stay and teach in Japan for one full year. It is a program to promote internationalization through the development of mutual understanding between Japan and other countries. Its aim is to increase Japanese education in foreign languages. You can continue to study the Japanese language during your stay. 

Makes you appreciate your own culture and language:

Learning Japanese will help you to appreciate your own culture as well as your own language because it improves your communication and cognitive skills. Accessing a culture that is very different from yours will heighten your awareness that cultures and languages vary. 

uniforms:

all children should wear school uniforms because A school uniform teaches students to dress smartly and take pride in their appearance. Perhaps most importantly, a uniform means students don't have to worry about peer pressure when it comes to their clothes. When everyone is dressed the same, worrying about what you look like isn't so important.
